500-1 is open, supporting walkup experiments in Searle. It’s outfitted with a different probe to provide better 13C sensitivity and capabilities of observing 31P, 11B, 195Pt, and more. Spectra are shown for a standard 10 mg/mL sample of carvone to provide a visual basis for comparison.
The new 400-2 is ready for use! With this upgrade, the spectrometer has transformed into an automated high-throughput engine for routine data acquisition. “Routine” now includes a variety of standard 2D experiments, plus 1D experiments for a growing assortment of NMR-active nuclei.
Major events took place in Week 1 of reopening, including a number of hardware and software upgrades to NMR systems. For Week 2, expect to continue using 400-1 for routine work. Other systems are actively being configured and upgraded in various ways, so please be patient.
